Vendor Setup Information: Vendors may begin setting up at 4pm on Friday and at 7am on Saturday and at 10am on Sunday. Vendors are responsible for their own tables, chairs, tents, etc… Outdoor vendors may drive right up to their booth for setup. Indoor vendors may also drive into the building to unload, provided it doesn’t get too crowded. We will have staff onsite to direct you. Teardown begins at 5pm on Sunday.

If you are using a tent you must make sure it is properly weighted and secured.

Outdoor vendors are encouraged to bring extra lighting, the more festive the better, to use after dark. There are lights onsite, but additional ones in your booth are advised.

Camping is allowed overnight onsite.

FOOD TRUCKS

Food Truck Setup: Please plan to be set up and ready for inspection at least one hour prior to the show so we can make sure everything is properly placed and the health inspector can do their job efficiently.

Electricity and Water: Please keep in mind there is a $75 fee if you will be using the electrical hookups provided by the venue. There is no fee if you are providing your own electricity or not using electricity at all. Water is available onsite. Nevertheless, all food trucks and food vendors must be able to operate self-sufficiently and independent of outside water and electricity if the need arises.

Menus and Feeding the Vendors: We have about 300 vendors at this show and many of them will be stuck at their booths starving and lamenting that they can’t leave to visit you awesome people. I encourage you to print menus that we can give to the vendors so they can place orders by text or phone, either to make their wait in line quicker or to have their food delivered to their booth if you have the means to do so.

Most ODDsome Food Truck Contest: We will be offering a free food truck space at a future Oddmall show to the winner of the Food Truck taste test. If you wish to participate we request a donation of four sample meals (whatever items you want to submit for judgement – one for each judge) so we can make an informed decision. Participation is voluntary and you are under no obligation to give free food to the judges (although you won’t qualify to win if you don’t participate). The judges will have some obvious way to mark themselves as such and will approach each of you at a random time. If you do not with to participate please just let the judges know when they arrive.

I think we are all going to have a great show! If you have any questions please feel free to email me and I will answer as soon as possible.
